Video's showing how to make certain Polish foods.

I know there's lots of threads about Polish food but unless you have watched someone making the dish, and it is new to you it can be hard to make it yourself ? So i thought maybe we could share videos that demonstrate how to make a particular Polish dish.


I saw this one recently and thought it was quite good, so i shall start the thread off with this video.


"How to Make Paczki"

:)





Does anyone have anymore that can be shared ?

Pierogi.

I saw this one on youtube and at first thought it was going to be a bit silly. But it's good because the finished product looks good and it's really easy to follow the instructions and it's fun to watch too. :)

I am so hungry for pierogi now lol

That looks like a lot of work, but well worth the effort. However, I think that unless you have an "expert" by your side, it would be easy to screw up the consistency of the ciastko na pierogi (sp?). Too loose and there are problems, too dry and you have a different set of problems. How exactly do you know how thick to roll it?

Otherwise, it was an enjoyable video to watch, with a great sense of humor injected by the participants! One thumb up from me!

Now I'm really looking forward to having some mouth-watering pierogi, at the Polish festival in Los Angeles tomorrow.

Lir I found one that was about making golabki and I watched it. It got near the end and it said for more to visit another site, so I visited the other site and the video didn't work...sigh...so I'll try finding it again.

Good idea for a thread, sometimes watching someone make something is easier than trying to follow a recipe.

I've already had a request for paczki from someone who watched that video you posted so maybe I'll try it... ;) I'll have that video on a constant loop while I do!

That would be great if you managed to find it. I'll keep my eye out for more as well :)

Thanks PD :)

I thought that guy on the video was really good. That's what gave me the idea for the thread.

Would be great if you would post a picture if you make some. I may try some in a week or two and see how they work out as well.

I found it properly, here it is: Ana's Kitchen - Golabki

Need to make some choice between flash player and quick time or something. Anyway, it works. She frys them in this one which is something I have never tried.

Here's Ana's tomato sauce recipe too.

I'll try to do the paczki but I'm going to have to buy something to fry them in because my biggest pan met its death recently and it was the only one suitable. :)

The link is coming up as broken for me ?

I found her on youtube PD :)

AH that's what it did for me too to start with but when I got it, just below the video box there is there is two symbols, one and f and one a Q. I use Q because I have quicktime.

Those YouTube videos are her but they're not the full length explanations.

Try going to the Revver video sharing website and typing 'Ana's Kitchen' in the search. I hope that it will come up that way.

Is this like the Polish Gordon Ramsey/Jamie Oliver??

I wish i'd found this when i really needed it, i wonder how many times it would have taken me to get it right???

Props to Ana

The guy in the first video? He's great. It's like cooking isn't an effort for him. So he can visit me any time. I'll keep a bed made up in the manor in case he feels like dropping by...

Ana is a great cook but sometimes her videos are hard to access. She should have popped them all full-length on YouTube.

the only problem there is that you can't have a long video on youtube anymore, they have limited the length, well actually the size of the file you can upload.
